About the Book

Buried deep within the shadows of a twelfth-century Saxon castle lie secrets so disturbing they are best left unearthed. Only the inmates of Frauengefängnis Hoheneck [Hoheneck Women's Prison] know the full story—but none of them are talking.

Janek Dabrowski, scarred by war, grapples with an all-consuming obsession for revenge. And as the tides of oppression shift from fascism to communism, so the Polish resistance fighter transforms his ardour into a thirst for power within the East German secret police [the Stasi].

His son Karl, raised under the stifling grip of communism, rejects his father's ideology, and plans to escape with Anja Bach, the love of his life. This lays the groundwork for a conflict of monstrous betrayal, extraordinary courage, and enduring love.

Meanwhile, half a world away, James Llewelyn, disillusioned by personal tragedy, reignites his passion after a chance encounter with the beautiful but elusive Kimberly Wagner. Propelled into a frantic pursuit of love, he unwittingly finds himself entangled in a web of broken lives from which there is no escape but to face his ghosts of the past.

What is it that binds these characters together? Who will rise, and who will fall? And what is the secret that both horrifies and inspires them?

Set against the backdrops of snow-covered Polish fields and Cold War checkpoints, through to the beaches and boardrooms of Australia, The Angel of Hoheneck weaves a gripping tale of one man's stark choices that impact generations and reverberate around the globe.
